18th century stays
Just a pair of stays i have been making since the beginning of my holidays, I was planning on making more but the sewing machine broke, so this will be all i make over christmas.
It is inspired by this real 18th century bodice http://defunctfashion.tumblr.com/post/1374855216/corset-c-late-18th-century
and this dress from sweeny todd
and yes, i know sweeny todd is not set in the 18th century, but its pretty so shhhh
The colours dont look so good on the photos as real life, the stays are a light, ice blue and the tulle skirt (H&M by the way) is a light dusty pink. Is it just me or does it have a kind of Alice in Wonderlandy feel about it? If only i still had my long blonde hair, that would be a perfect costume. Neevvver Mind.
Might not post anything else until after christmas at least, so
